Skipper and First Mate Millard (Big Bear and Pepe)

Sunday the 1st of September
The captain got up this morning and worked his boiled egg magic. What a wonderful start to the day, sitting in the early morning warmth before the sun makes it too hot not to have the shade pulled over. Some may say Bears egg entries are not up to much, but as this was a planned day off, I think we can be a little slack with discipline.
Sheer bliss and it shows.
Now I noticed a fair few flies. Out came my new purchase from Papeete. The world’s best fly trap – Fermone. I added one of the three packets of powder that came with it, water to the fill line and swished it around. Smells a bit like the stuff I used to feed the roses with. Lo and behold as I stepped out into the cockpit the first victim leapt at it, went through one of the four holes in the cap and dived in. Split seconds to success. Those that didn’t rush to it thought something massive was around and fled. Fly problem over.
A day on the beach. That hasn’t happened in quite a while. Bear and Beez with big smiles.
ALL IN ALL A REAL TREAT
A LOVELY DAY IN PARADISE
